With his solo art, Marc Copland tries to do both. In the metastructure of the CD, in which the standard «Some Other Time» by Leonard Bernstein (a song Bill Evans loved as well) is repeated three times, he suspends time through repetition; actually, in the variation, the increasing evanescence of the piece. In the individual tracks, which follow a sophisticated dramaturgy and besides Bernstein’s tune comprise four compositions by Copland and pieces by Wayne Shorter, John Lewis, Miles Davis and Don Sebesky, he «robs» time from the metre to install his own (most significantly in «All Blues», a little broken waltz, which in the original is characterised by rhythmic rigidity). Time within time. — Peter Rüedi
